Serena Williams loss doesn't mean my next round is easier, says Barty

The Czech, who is the world's number one doubles player, kept up the pressure on the misfiring top seed, breaking for a 3-2 lead in the second set. She played incredibly clean in that upset win over No. 1 seed Naomi Osaka.

Meanwhile, not since a defeat in the same round against Alize Cornet at Wimbledon in 2013 has Williams been beaten before the quarter-finals at one of the sport's biggest events.

One of the most aggressive players in the women's game, Osaka squandered all seven break points she created in the first set.

It was only the third tour-level loss by Williams to an American player younger than her in 42 career matches at any tournament.

Osaka was undone by a shocking 38 unforced errors as she finally ran out of luck in Paris having had to come back from a set down in her first two matches. Siniakova defeated Osaka 6-4, 6-2 to advance to the fourth round.

His conqueror in the 2015 final, Wawrinka, collected his 500th career victory by completing a win over Grigor Dimitrov 7-6 (5), 7-6 (4) and 7-6 (8).

Sofia Kenin said after the match that she was still trying to process what had happened.

"It's incredible, I can't believe it, I am so happy now", said Siniakova.

"I felt there was a weight on me".

"I can say she's more aggressive than me".

Another, newer member of tennis royalty was upended earlier in the day.

In addition to revealing the smartphone's battery capacity, the report sheds light on some of its other key features as well. Samsung India recently confirmed that it will be launching the Galaxy M40 in the country at an event on June 11 .

The 23-time Grand Slam champion hit 34 unforced errors and her movement was thoroughly exposed by an opponent 17 years her junior and ranked 35th in the world.

Serena Williams's bid to win a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title was thwarted again on Saturday when she was knocked out of the French Open 6-2, 7-5 by compatriot Sofia Kenin in the third round. For me this is something that I have wanted to do forever, but I think I have to think about it like if it was that easy, everyone would have done it.

"I think I was overthinking this calendar slam", said Osaka. "But once I got my feet used to the court, it was much better today".

The nerveless youngster from Pembroke Pines, Florida saved a break point and on her second match point Williams went long.

And she had said she considered not entering the French Open at all.

She was already looking forward.

"I hope I have time go get fit for Wimbledon. I had to fight for every point".

"I would have expected to have gotten past the third round". Just look at past year when she went 0-5 on Tour.

Alex Kenin and his wife, Svetlana, immigrated to the United States via Austria and Italy in 1987. Her family moved to NY when she was a baby, and she now is based in Florida.

But the American remains defiant over her longevity.

Said her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou: "All I know is, she was not ready".
